Chairman Peter G. Fitzgerald Chain Bridge Bank, N.A. is a private bank whose mission is to provide the best possible banking experience by combining leading-edge technology with attentive personal service.

Our culture is 180 degrees opposite that of other banks, where employee incentives often create conflicts with the interests of clients. No one at Chain Bridge Bank is paid on commission. Our aim is to do well by doing well by our clients. Most of our new business comes from referrals made by our existing clients whose trust we have earned.

In addition to its attentive personal service and leading edge technology, Chain Bridge Bank also stands out for its historic safety and soundness. Chain Bridge Bank maintains higher levels of reserves, liquidity and risk-based capital than most of its local and national competitors. It has consistently earned the highest ratings from both BauerFinancial, Inc., and Veribanc, Inc., two of the nation’s leading independent bank ratings firms.

Chain Bridge Bank offers a broad array of business and personal deposit account options, together with state-of-the-art payments, reporting and bill-pay technology that can help you run your business or household more efficiently. Clients may open accounts through a personal banker or online, in just minutes, without ever going into the Bank.

Chain Bridge’s experienced commercial loan officers provide prudent and judicious counseling to businesses and nonprofit organizations of all sizes. We work hard to understand all aspects of client businesses and then tailor financing solutions to help the businesses succeed.

Our residential mortgage division offers a full range of both standard and customized mortgage solutions both for homeowners and investors. Our unique ability to underwrite residential mortgages that we keep and service rather than sell to investors gives us flexibility that other lenders usually lack. More often than not, a Chain Bridge Bank mortgage is the sensible solution for “jumbo” borrowers, business owners and those who have complicated sources of income.

If you want a bank you can trust, and one that combines leading-edge technology with attentive personal service, then please contact us. We would be honored to serve you.


Peter G. Fitzgerald,

Chairman of the Board
